Missouri’s Amendment 2, placed on yesterday’s primary election, also known as the Public Prayer Amendment, passed with overwhelming support yesterday. With just 2% of the vote tallied, the measure was declared to be successful with over 87% of the vote at current count. The vote today comes as a blessing to those on the christian right that fear the secularization of America is threatening Christianity:
“The reason the measure almost certainly will be approved today is because Missouri’s Christian majority has decided it will no longer do nothing as the godless, the secularist, the non-sectarian wage unholy war against those who share the faith of this nation’s founders.”
The official ballot title of the Public Prayer Amendment reads:
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to ensure:
- That the right of Missouri citizens to express their religious beliefs shall not be infringed;
- That school children have the right to pray and acknowledge God voluntarily in their schools; and
- That all public schools shall display the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.
